My experience at this school has been beyond amazing. Estero High School parents make the experience very enjoyable. Some of my favorite experiences have been going to football and baseball games. Without the parents, these games could not happen. The time they put in to volunteering in the concessions and at the merchandise booth really makes it a fun experience. This is why Estero High is unique and I would defiantly choose it again if I had to do it all over again.

Football received(s) the most recognition and every other sport was hidden. It wasn't until my senior year that I realized my school had lacrosse and soccer. The only reason I knew about the swim team was because I met someone my freshmen year on the bus who told me she was on it. We do not have our own pool... All funding seems to go strictly to football. My last year(2014-2015) lacrosse and track started to get popular and I wish I knew about them sooner because they seemed to be really great and I would have enjoyed being a part of the team!

Clubs and activities after school that are supposed to be prestigious tend to fall short. For example the National Honor Society I'm in is not very special, laid back, and not very productive in the community I do not see why being a part of some of these clubs is so important while they can be so mediocre. As for football, the coaches try their best but the students on the team are terrible because they do not care about others or their education.
